I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

MS takes care of its employees, and encourages you to move around to try different roles and teams. Benefits are great. You get a great sense of security at Microsoft.

Cons

If you want to make money, then Microsoft is not the right company. The pay is not as competitive as other well settled companies in the bay area. Sometimes you get frustrated thinking that MS is always catching up to competition.

Advice to Management

Enable more innovation and agility.

Other Employee Reviews for Microsoft

  1. "Mostly good experience but limited work/life balance"

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits package is very good, although not as good as a few years ago. Flexible work schedule is helpful for those with families. Lots of smart individuals to work with.

    Cons

    Limited resources (employees) to do the amount of work required. I easily spend 50-60 hours/week working, so the work/life balance is an issue. Many of the managers are not good people managers and have difficulty understanding the day-to-day issues of the employees who actually do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Too much political infighting among teams. Managers need to have skills in managing people and not just projects.


  2. "Okay place to work"

    Pros

    Everyone is really results driven and focused. Everyone has a great team work mentality. My manager was very open for questions and advice.

    Cons

    Everyone acts like they are better then you. Very cliquey. Hard to get to know some people on other teams.

    Advice to Management

    Tell you employees what you need from them and be more hand off.
